Tour de France Stage 10: Leaving the Door Open

I must say, I don't think I have ever seen this before, Alberto Contador (Tinkoff Saxo) getting dropped on a climb.  Contador is trying to do the rarely attempt Giro/Tour double.  To day his legs seemed to show the cost of taking the overall victory of the 98th Giro d'Italia.  With Geraint Thomas (Team Sky) on the front driving a vicious pace up the Col de Soudet, Contador wasn't the only rider to get dropped by the ever thinning front group.

This is a small original watercolor and ink painting that was created using Yarka St. Petersburg watercolors and Steve Quiller brushes from Jack Richeson & Company, www.richesonart.com.  They are a small family run art supply company with some fabulous supplies for artists and crafters alike.  In addition, this painting is available through my artist website at www.greigleach.com.  To purchase this particular painting for only $60 USD, just follow the direct link at the end of this post.  Don't delay, this is an original painting, so there is only one like it.  When it is gone, it is gone.
